  • Equimax combines ivermectin and praziquantel to treat roundworms, bots, pinworms and three species of tapeworms.
  • Using Equimax in spring and autumn treats all of these parasites in a single dose, making worming more simple and cost effective whilst helping to reduce the risk of resistance.

  • Large Strongyles
  • Small Strongyles (adults)
  • Hairworms
  • Pinworms
  • Ascarids
  • Intestinal Threadworms
  • Large-mouth stomach worms
  • Lungworms
  • Neck threadworm
  • Stomach bots
  • Tapeworms
When should Equimax be used? Equimax should be used in spring and autumn, alongside Eraquell in early and late summer and a treatment for encysted small redworms over the winter months, to provide a complete year round parasite control programme for all types of horses and ponies, including pregnant and lactating mares, and foals over two weeks of age.

Instructions for use Equimax oral gel for horses is given by mouth at the recommended dose rate. The first syringe division delivers sufficient paste to treat 100kg of bodyweight. Each subsequent division delivers sufficient paste to treat 50kg of bodyweight. The syringe delivers sufficient paste to treat 700kg bodyweight at the recommended dose rate.

The horse’s weight should be accurately determined to ensure use of the correct dose of product. Use of a scale or weigh tape is recommended to ensure accurate dosing.
Before administration adjust the syringe to the calculated dosage by setting the ring on the plunger.

The animal’s mouth must be free of food. The syringe should be placed between the front and back teeth and the paste deposited at the base of the tongue. Immediately elevate the head for a few seconds to ensure that the product is swallowed.

Treatment is recommended at least twice a year, in spring and autumn. Use alongside Eraquell in summer to provide all year round protection from intestinal parasites.

How long will it last (days)? Will treat one horse up to 700kg.
